To narrow the gap between traditional training and the rapid changes of technology in the context of I.R 4.0, a mobile phone application is created based on the Career Guidance Package for ages 14 to 19 developed by the ILO from Garner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences to help students to discover their own interests, aptitude, and potentials.

Also, the students will understand the world of work to prepare for the career path development as well as find a suitable direction after high school. This tool also help to gather opinions, engage the parents and save their time in this crucial process.

However, this tool is best used with the career guidance teachers to provide the most suitable choices for students in their conditions. In the next development phases, the application will be improved with new features and updated contents.

Through the mobile application, users will be allowed to create an account using their email or telephone number. This in order to being able to use the multiple-choice tests, developed by the Career Guidance and Counselling Working Group under the Project.

The tests are designed to help users understand their interests, aptitudes and potential to succeed in the Labour Market. After undertaking the mobile test, the application will send a notice to the email of the users indicating their results and advising on career alternatives.

Users are invited to maintain their account and come back to re-take the tests in the future if they wish to reassess their skills, in cases where they are looking for a career change or find themselves in any type of labour market transition period.

The mobile application is also expected to provide students with enough information to understand the world of the work and with the tools to prepare a career plan by and for themselves.
